Leo is a 12 year-old schoolboy who loves science and astronomy and hates History, November and Tuesdays. But one frosty, November night his quiet, comfortable life is turned upside-down by a tiny piece of stone that falls from the sky and lands at his feet. The stone fragment draws Leo into another world; a world of magicians, spells and dark, brooding evil. Slowly, as he descends into nightmare, he begins to wonder if he will ever see his own world again….
My name is Tim Kearsley. I was born in Northamptonshire in England, in February, 1955.
The Healing Shard is my first novel and was published in July, 2012.
Apart from writing, I love to walk and take in everything Nature has to offer. Someone said that to be interested in less than everything is a betrayal of the soul. Well, I don’t know if that’s true or not, but there are more things in this Universe to interest me than I can cover in one lifetime. My eyes are often looking to the heavens and the wonders it holds, both by day and especially by night.
I also have a keen interest in aviation and can often be found at one of the many airshows. My favourite aircraft? It’s a tough choice, but I think the Spitfire has to be the one!
I am a member of Mensa.
I still live in Northamptonshire and I still find new things every day to astound me.
